So Q1 results are out and I'm going to try to do some usual yield analysis here. Here are some quick summaries from glancing around some of the markets I track. - DL is really eating AA's lunch at JFK. I know this is B6 thread, but it's pretty interesting to see how much DL is improving in performa...Jump to post
LAX has many positive things and hardly are there ever any long departure lines on either north or south side compared to many other major airports. Pushback to takeoff is generally only a few minutes. -No crossing runways, and basically no weather. -2 traversing north south taxiways. -Center taxiwa...Jump to post
The MAX is a giant turd and should never have been developed. Boeing put suits, profit, and Wall Street ahead of a quality product that should have been a clean sheet design from the start. The 737 line should have been closed after the successful legacy of the classics and NG models. This is what h...Jump to post

NK just started its BUR service today.

BUR was graced by the Cargojet “Air Drake” 762 last week. Someone got some good photos of landing and a video of her taxiing to the FBO.

Pipe dreams of Soviet Grandeur like the first SST and Space Shuttle knock off. Nothing but another failed attempt that will A-Be DOA, or B- sell 2-3 frames to Aeroflot that will fly a year or two before being inefficient, unreliable, grounded and then mothballed. Soviet engineers were very much aga...Jump to post
I am so tired of the argument is not an adequate reliever airport for LAX. People forget of the millions of people in greater LA who live closer to ONT and have to continually go to LAX. ONT is not meant to serve western LA county period. It serves the other side of LA that those on the western sid...Jump to post

Don’t call them activists. Call them terrorists. And what do we do to terrorists? Neutralize them! Anyone caught intentionally trying to interfere with an arriving or departing aircraft endangering the lives of hundreds should be executed on the spot.Jump to post
So word on the street is Alaska is going to start letting their customer facing employees, including flight attendants, lose the tie and show their tattoos. With that nail in the coffin, JD better throw them into the LCC category and move B6 up to traditional. Because nothing screams non traditiona...Jump to post
So I think you and I can split this argument that we are both wrong in a way and both right. I disagree; your use of "pay to play" implies that companies must pay JD Power to even be considered for the award, and that being named as a winner is because other companies who "didn't pay...Jump to post
Actually the pay starts at $100,000.00 to participate in the JD Power polling surveys. My understanding is that’s the licensing fee to use their name and to have access to their data from their surveys, not a fee just to be included in their surveys. I’m sure you’re citing this article: https://www...Jump to post
Because I own a corporate marketing/consulting and PR company this is a kit I have regarding the JD Power system. J.D. Power and Associates operates on the principle that information is money. J.D.

neighboring affluent communities in LA such as Sherman Oaks and Universal City are already fighting the airport with increased noise levels thanks to the new FAA takeoff procedures/flight paths, so we all here expect some lawsuits over increased ambient noise and traffic congestion. I live in Valle...Jump to post
My understanding is the only "pay" that happens is a licensing fee that allows winners to use the JD Power name and logos in the winner's branding, coupled with fees for each physical trophy that is produced. Do you have actual information to the contrary that you'd be willing to share? I...Jump to post
Gotta get Doug Parker out of there. They guy is a schmuck. He has destroyed what AA built up to pre merger. They became a great airline with great service only to be turned into an ULCC in a tuxedo. As an ex multi year gold with AA, I haven’t stepped foot on AA metal for 4 years. I hope the board ca...Jump to post
While price is a driving factor it’s not a deciding factor. The name is the recognition that people relate to. People buy Coca Cola and Pepsi because of the brand recognition not the price. If what you are saying is true then RC Cola, Vernors, Tab and Diet Rite (all lower priced than the majors) wo...Jump to post
I dont understand the constant argument on what airline names people think of depending on where they are in the US. For what its worth If you want to argue that nobody thinks "Alaska" in the east/Caribbean or nobody thinks "jetBlue" on the west coast I would argue "those p...Jump to post
How this process has taken so long to get going is astounding. The gate cap at 14 gates (current and planned) is not changing. The only thing changing is the facilities and location. I don’t understand how this has taken decades and still yet to break ground. LGB planned, developed and built the new...Jump to post

I know that the discussion is around WN and the A220 here but why isn't the E2 part of their evaluation? Because the E2 is considered an RJ and the A220 mainline. A220 has more seats, taller cabin height, larger overhead bins, wider seats, wider aisles,larger cargo hold, larger galleys,and more ope...Jump to post
I do like the tail and enlarged globe. I like the fuselage isn’t all euro white. I like that the engines have color. I do not like the large billboard titles or the basic font. I do not like the thin blue toned wavy line. And I do not like the pale gray belly. I wish the belly was a darker gray and ...Jump to post
Update: Current situation has changed from the last couple weeks. AA with new mainline service to and from DFW was using Terminal B and gate B4, but due to the amount of traffic coming in, with Mesa/Skywest(AA) RJ-700s and the B73-8 coming in at banks, airport ops has given them priority handling b...Jump to post
Everyone talks about the steep takeoffs at SNA, I'd like to experience it some day. One of my airline pilot friends told me that it's really not that steep but rather Orange County residents have their nose so high up in the air that it just feels that way. :smile: You might be disappointed nowaday...Jump to post
I don’t even think their first MAX has rolled out of the FAL yet. You realize there are plenty of other airlines that are also in this situation. When the 787 was grounded 5 years ago, you didn’t see airlines go out and start buying A330s and A350s. Once is the aircraft is back in the air people ar...Jump to post
WN has now been in LGB for 2 years and their performance on some of these routes really have not improved much.

JetBlue’s problems at LGB are all its own doing. JetBlue is hardly ignorant of the rules. Running a business will give you a much better understanding of the complexities of trying to do business. Just shows how clueless govt officials are to business. I looked at all of the personal bio’s on the c...Jump to post
Hilarious how B6 just dumped the slots back on the councils table , like a BOSS. Those 320's are better utilized at other airports. I love it. Would be even better if they just said good bye nice to know you and split up ops between LAX,BUR, and ONT. I wish the airport would just be turned into end...Jump to post

My point was that the City has for decades created a unfriendly business policy when it came to the airport and it’s tenants.

I don’t buy the noise issue one bit. LGB does a fraction of what other nimby related secondary LA area airports do like SNA and BUR. On top of that unlike the others I mentioned that have short runways, LGB has a 10,000 runway so there aren’t the full power takeoffs and in regards to landings LGB ha...Jump to post
